Airport Lodge Motel
Ranked #36 of 146 Hotels in Christchurch
Reviewed September 10, 2012

I've stayed in hotels all around the world and the customer service here was equal to the best.
Lady who picked us up was AMAZING! (sorry I forgot your name). I got off the plane and called the Airport Lodge Motel late at 11:30pm, she answered the phone and was extremley friendly and helpful, and said I'll just turn your heaters on and I'll come to pick you up, she then asked us if we wanted to stop anywhere for dinner on the way (still all part of the free shuttle service) she took us to maccas. She was very caring, hospitable, and funny. She showed us to our room which was large, freshly painted, carpets were clean, new bathroom, updated kitchen. people have written saying the rooms need updating, however for the service, value, spic and span rooms and convienience I can handle the fact the curtains and bedspreads were a little dated looking.
I stayed there the night before setting off on my trip around NZ and I will be staying there on the last night before I fly out. Stay here you won't regret it!

We booked this hotel online for our last night in New Zealand after our motorhome holiday. There were four of us (two couples) and we had a two bedroom unit. It was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook ourselves a meal. We appreciated too being driven to the airport for our early morning flight home. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed here in a last minute move. Didn't know what to expect. From the outside it looks like you are going to stay in a toilet block - but once in the rooms are cosy clean and comfy and for a quick stay while in transit for a good price, what more do you want. They even had wifi ! Pretty good for a rainy afternoon in Chch.

Room was very clean and comfortable and the lady that runs the motel is fantastic. We arrived late at night and she picked us up from the airport and even offered to take us to McDonalds if we were hungry. She also organised a wake up call and taxi for our early flight the next morning. The room was nice and warm as she had turned on the heater for us before we arrived. High recommend this motel as it was perfect for our short stopover in Christchurch

Unit was very clean and tidy. We were 2 couples staying in a 2 bedroom unit. Each room had 1 double (not a queen. but the bed was so incredibly comfortable I would've liked to have taken it home) and 1 single.
We stayed 2 nights, and on the first night the lights in the kitchen blew, even after telling reception, these were not replaced during our stay. Also there was 1 roll of toilet paper(half gone already), for 4 people, for 2 nights. This was not enough. We ran out in the middle of the second night, very surprising there was no extra supplied in the bathroom cabinet, so it was a mad dash to BP down the road to get some to last us the night.

Otherwise, it was a great stay. Decor could do with updating, but it was still a comfortable place for a couple of nights.

The woman who picked us up late at night from Chch airport was more than helpful, was friendly and even phoned around to get us a good rate for car rental the next day.
Motel was in a great location, handy to the airport.
Rooms were basic but clean, tidy and comfortable.
DVD's were available which was also a bonus!

Only 5 minutes’ drive from the airport. Good restaurant and takeaway next to a little supermarket are all within an easy walking distance. Nice and kind staff. Room was also warm and comfortable.
Would stay here again if I need to head for the airport very early in the morning next time.
